French Broad 13 Rebels ESB

French Broad Brewery, Asheville, NC

5.2% ABV

13 Rebels is a hazy, dark amber color.  There is a bit of malt on the nose, but only very slight.  The isn’t much of a taste up front or on the end, but a lot of bitterness in the middle.  Most of the  malt is on the aftertaste with a lingering bitterness.  It is still fairly balanced though and not overly bitter.  It’s a nice change of pace from Fuller’s ESB.  This is definitely an American take on an old classic.

Would we have this again? Yes

6 pk? No
